New leader at the helm of S&T’s research, graduate programs

An expert in multi-agent systems and artificial intelligence is now leading Missouri S&T’s research efforts. Costas Tsatsoulis, former dean of the College of Engineering at the University of North Texas, joined S&T as vice chancellor for research and dean of graduate studies on Sept. 4.

“In Missouri S&T, I see all the necessary ingredients that will allow us to rise to new levels of excellence,” says Tsatsoulis.

An electrical engineer, Tsatsoulis became UNT’s engineering dean in 2008 following a 20-year career at the University of Kansas. At KU, he served as chair of electrical engineering and computer science from 2004 to 2008 and director of the Intelligent Systems and Information Management Laboratory from 1997 to 2003.

Tsatsoulis’ research focuses on multi-agent systems, case-based reasoning, machine learning and intelligent image analysis. He is the author of 25 journal articles and 79 published conference and workshop papers and is co-editor of the textbook Analysis of SAR Data of the Polar Oceans (Springer Verlag, 1998). He holds one U.S. patent for an automated data entry system.

Tsatsoulis holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Purdue University in Lafayette, Ind.

Honoring new academy members

In October, 12 alumni and friends were inducted into Missouri S&T academies. Academy membership recognizes careers of distinction and invites members to share their wisdom, influence and resources with faculty and students. Some academies hold induction ceremonies in the fall, others in the spring.

Boosting cyber-physical security

A wide array of complex systems that rely on computers — from public water supply systems and electric grids to chemical plants and self-driving vehicles — increasingly come under not just digital but physical attacks. Bruce McMillin, professor and interim chair of computer science at Missouri S&T, is looking to change that by developing stronger safeguards […]

MXene discovery could improve energy storage

In spite of their diminutive size, 2-D titanium carbide materials known as MXenes are “quite reactive” to water, a discovery S&T researchers say could have implications for energy storage and harvesting applications such as batteries, supercapacitors and beyond. Their findings were published in 2018 in the American Chemical Society journal Inorganic Chemistry.

A faster charge for electric vehicles

One drawback of electric vehicles (EVs) is the time it takes to charge them. But what if you could plug in your EV and fully charge it as quickly as it takes to fill up a conventional car with gasoline? Missouri S&T researchers, in collaboration with three private companies, are working to make speedy charging […]
